What: Meadows Museum holiday party and Moss/Chumley Award presentation
The 411: Meadows Museum patrons celebrated more than just the holidays at their December soiree; they also gathered to honor 2014 Moss/Chumley Award winner Darryl Lauster, an associate professor of sculpture at the University of Texas at Arlington. Named for two Dallas art dealers who made significant contributions to the local art scene in the 1980s, the annual award recognizes an outstanding North Texas artist who also has a proven track record as a community advocate for the visual arts. Lauster’s work — which ranges from digital media and printmaking to sculpture and installation — investigates and appropriates American history and aspects of the country’s identity. A selected piece of his, Memorial (2010-2012), will be on view at the Meadows Museum through the end of 2014.
